The Globe is reporting that Bascom Lodge on the summit of Mt. Greylock is among a number of State-owned properties that Massachusetts is putting out for long-term lease in exchange for upkeep commitments. Bascom, which offered hikers (and those who drove up) hostel-style lodging and meals, has been closed during the two-year repair (rebuilding?) of the Greylock summit road. Other properties profiled in the Globe article seem to be in terrible shape, but Bascom had seemed to me to be in decent shape when I was up there several years ago – of course, it would quickly deteriorate while not used. I hope someone will step forward to reopen it.

Does anyone know anything about this?
